This fruit grows in Africa and is not hard to spot. It looks almost like a slimmer and discolored watermelon on the outside, but the inside features a white and powdery pulp that tastes like a pear, but has a very light flavor. This fruit can be used in any fashion a normal fruit can, but it’s true benefits lie in its nutrients. It has about 5 times as much vitamin C as oranges and twice as much calcium as milk.
